What is your favourite season? I prefer spring and autumn. Both are cooler seasons. Both are colourful. Usually I will try to travel to the temperate countries during these seasons. (ˆ_ˆ)
Mikoto left his father’s house when he was 17 yrs old. He rented a room with the small inheritance from his deceased mother and worked part-time in a cafe set up by a group of old retirees while doing his studies.
His landlord and also one of owners of the cafe was a retired banker. He saw in Mikoto the son he never had and took him under his wings. He taught him to make good coffee, do sound investment, and how to enjoy his life. He became his mentor, his father and the family Mikoto has lost.
When his mentor passed on, he left Mikoto a house, his kimonos, his books and his cat.
Mikoto would wear his mentor’s kimonos during important occasion or whenever he feels lonely or lost or misses his mentor.
Most of the times, we tend to operate by auto mode, not knowing why we do something or say something. Doing things by habit. Perhaps, we need to learn to start looking at the things around us. Notice the change in the season. Feel the change in the air. Live the moment. Before the leaves are all gone.
Today is St Valentine’s Day when a lot of people celebrate their love by giving cards, letters and gifts.
We don’t have the practice of observing this day. So there’s no plan today. Perhaps we need to rethink and show our love and affection daily instead…
Yesterday I received the news of a friend’s sudden demise. It all happened very fast. We are all in shock. Some of us just met her last week. Some of us didn’t. Those who did expressed their disbelief for she seemed well. Those who didn’t expressed their regrets of not being able to meet her last week.

Happy Valentine’s to you all.
Ziki [直] arrived on 27 Aug and he’s the fairest of them all. He is a Waseon Rosy White on Humming Dolly new Attractive body. He was released during SWITCH 6th Anniversary. I gave him a light face up since he’s very fair. Initially I thought of using a light coloured wig but somehow, he doesn’t seem to like it. So will settle with this pecan brown Tart cut for him.
I will need to shop for a pair of eyes for him though. I borrowed Tsune’s blue eyes for this shoot. The one below is a pale rose which I don’t like how he looks with it.
Later, when the light is good, will try to take some comparison photos of him with the rest of the dolly folks and you will see how fair he is.
